Two Eastbourne Swimming Club swimmers recently qualified to compete in the South East Regional Winter Short-course Championships at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth.

Harriet Farrington and Sarah Quinn, both 15, performed incredibly against other top South East Region swimmers, in the open age group championships.

Sarah swam a great swim in the female 100m breastroke with a time of 1.19.91, placing her 40th in the open age group and 28th in the juniors. She also swam 200m breastroke in a time of 2.50.20 placing her 33 in the open age group and 24th in the juniors.

Harriet Farrington had a superb swim in the 100m individual medley race, narrowly missing out on a place in the final, achieving a personal best time of 1.09.22 and only just missing the opportunity to qualify for the Short-course National Championships in December.

Harriet’s personal best time placed her in 12th position out of 33 swimmers in the open age group and 7th in the juniors.
